What’s new with HPE Hyper Converged Systems?


My team and I spent a wonderful week in London talking with customers and partners at HPE Discover. On the first day of the show, we made an announcement in partnership with Microsoft on a new offering within our newly branded HPE Hyper Converged portfolio – the HPE Hyper Converged 250 for Microsoft Cloud Platform System Standard. This new appliance comes ready to deploy a fully virtualized Microsoft infrastructure with easy connection to selected Azure services, management via System Center, and all-inclusive data services from HPE StoreVirtual VSA storage.

HPE Storage Guy Calvin Zito spent some time with product manager, Tim Doering, to get the quick rundown of the new Microsoft-based platform unveiled at the show.

For a little more background on the partnership and what is being delivered, HPE EVP Antonio Neri and Microsoft EVP Scott Guthrie outline the technology capabilities and platform in this video:

Lastly, as announced in the Discover general session, HPE and Microsoft have teamed up to deliver a broad set of infrastructure products and innovations to enable Hybrid Cloud computing using Microsoft Azure. HPE has selected Microsoft Azure as our preferred public cloud partner for HPE customers and will provide infrastructure and services for Microsoft’s hybrid cloud offerings.
